Mini Gift Guide: Christmas 2017.

A little list of my favorite things...

Ahh Christmas. It’s all good fun once we get through that first, sometimes dreaded, stage of gift shopping. To ease the burden a little I’ve listed some of my faves from this past year. Read on for a mini Christmas gift guide!

1. Life Hacks Calendar 2018

If you follow my Instastories you will be very familiar with this bad boy! Sometimes weird and quirky but always interesting this daily desk calendar makes the perfect stocking stuffer or secret Santa gift. I’ve already had plenty of followers ask about this one so you better get into an Officeworks store ASAP!

2. QH Collection

Like most things these days I came across dainty pieces from QH Collection on Instagram a few months ago. Choose from gold, silver or rose gold-plated (my fave!).

The girls behind the brand are also Sydney (northern beaches) locals! Always nice to support a small business 🙂

3. YSL Mon Paris Perfume

First perfume Paul had bought for me in 7 years BUT it’s a goodie and fast favourite! He picked it up in Duty-Free but Chemist Warehouse has amazing deals as well!

4. Mapiful Prints

These guys print out a piece of your favourite city in map form which makes for such a beautiful alternative to typography prints. I ended up doing his and hers prints of our birth cities for our office space: Voorburg, Netherlands for him and Kurunegala, Sri Lanka for me- though, my little country town wasn’t much for a map! #itsthethoughtthatcounts. There are plenty of customizable options as well so you can get the look that best suits your decor.

5. The Tea Nomad

Speaking of favourite cities, The Tea Nomad (another small business from Sydney) has wrapped up the essence of a few beautiful places in, as the name suggests, tea form!

The Maldives blend has hints of pineapple and coconut while the Kyoto hosts notes of Japanese yuzu flavours- yum 🙂 The copper finish and test tube packaging are so on point and make for a perfect little gift.
